New GM announced in Tourism Waitaki restructure


In a reshaped organisation, Jason Gaskill has been appointed as the new general manager for Tourism Waitaki.

The general manager will oversee the operations of Tourism Waitaki, Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony, Oamaru i-SITE and Alps 2 Ocean. Mr Gaskill will move internally from the Penguin Colony manager to the general manager role.

Tourism Waitaki chairwoman Annabel Berry said Mr Gaskill brought “excellent tourism and strategic business management experience” to the role.

“He has sound leadership skills combined with the ability to drive new tourism product like the Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail to the next stage,” Mrs Berry said.

Yesterday was his first day in the role, and he said he was looking forward to taking on the new challenge in an exciting time for the Waitaki District.
